Custom sorting in App Drawer
Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.
In many launchers like Xperia or Galaxy there's the manual rearrangement of the applications in the app drawer. I find it very convenient. The manual arrangement also could be introduced in the folders of the app drawer.
install date (ascending)
install date (descending)
Edit: Don't shout. It makes your message unreadable.
Option to sort drawers by use frequency. 'Nuff said!
I chose Apex just for this very reason...

I really really miss my custom sorting from other launchers (I had Go Launcher even though I hated it because it allowed me to sort the app drawer however I wanted). Was actually going to uninstall Nova, then I saw the dev comment that they're working on it. I hope you fix it fast, can't even stand to look at my app drawer right now.

this is a must. just installed Nova now but among all that customizability slightly disapointed to see there isn't any option for sorting... possibilities: usage frequency, install time, system default vs. user installed, custom (user placement - drag and drop)
This is a must for every user. I can't work without it...
Sort by date or by new.. very important, please add this.

We need custom sorting and date sorting,
This is fantastic. Will be my go to launcher with unrestricted ability to drag-and-drop to sort my drawer.
Glad to see progress has been started!
It's an excellent launcher but without the possibility to sort the apps by date or usage (or custom), it's not pleasant to use. Correct it and you'll get a lot of money.

Would definitely like the ability to sort by app usage.
Really looking forward to this!
thanks devs :)
Thank you Sol. That's the only thing that keeps me away from Nova. If custom sort is added then Nova is my default launcher. Waiting..
Kevin is looking into custom sort options and behaviour for the app drawer. Thanks for your patience.
Please add this features.

I just got Nova Launcher which I spent about 2 hours setting up (I'm really bad at this android stuff) and I find that I can't rearrange my app drawer, what the hell?! Even the stock launcher has this function. Plz add this function.......
Need custom sorting in drawer plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Immediately uninstalled nova launcher when I couldn't re-arrange the apps in my app drawer by date. 0/10
J'ai acheté la version Premium: pas de tri personnalisé, uniquement alphabétique c'est assez lamentable. J'ai remis le launcher par défaut sur mon LG G3. Je ne reviendrai à Nova que lorsque cette fonction élémentaire sera possioble. Très déçevant pour un launcher à 3 €.

Along with that make it easier to manually customize the icons in the app drawer.
